NASCAR Driver. Born in Hollywood, Florida, David "Davey" Allison was born the son of NASCAR series champion Bobby Allison and the nephew of NASCAR driver Donnie Allison. Having grown up in the racing world, Davey would naturally begin to race as well. After racing in numerous series and rising through the ranks, Davey would make it to the NASCAR Busch series in the early 1980's and in 1985, made his debut in the NASCAR Cup series. In his cup series career, he would make 191 starts and win 19 races, the most notable being the 1992 Daytona 500. On August 13, 1992, Davey's younger brother Clifford, who raced in the NASCAR Busch series, was killed while running practice laps at Michigan International Speedway. Davey rebounded from the tragedy and almost won the 1992 Cup series championship, finishing third overall to Alan Kulwicki. Kulwicki was killed the next April in a private plane crash. In 1993, Davey would purchase a new helicopter and on July 12, 1993, he and fellow driver Red Farmer were attempting to land at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. At some point during the landing, the helicopter went out of control and crashed. Farmer was seriously injured while Allison received serious head injuries. Allison succumbed the next morning at the age of 32. In 1998, Allison was officially inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame. (bio by: G.Photographer)
